Another Best Seller

Here's another best seller, because as we all know, everyone's story is a book and every book hits the best seller lists (see my rant last Friday):

Need Help with Memoir Bestseller (Comp: negotiable) I have a deep desire to write a book to share my story. Abuse, betrayl, abandonment, drugs, dysfunctional home, rape, discrimination you name and I have been through it. My family is filled with all kinds of characters from preachers to crack heads. I want someone to partner with me because I know there was a purpose for my pain and a destination for all of it. I don't have much money but I can make payments if someone who is an excellent writer will help me with writing and getting this published. Please only respond if you are serious.
